Tree Tenders is a course from Tree Pittsburgh that teaches about trees in urban or built-up environments — collectively termed the urban forest. Specifically, our curriculum covers tree biology & benefits, tree identification for beginners, tree planting, tree care, including pruning, and how to get involved in efforts to protect and grow your patch of the urban forest.
We are delighted to partner with Upstream Pgh for this training in the Nine Mile Run Watershed. All are welcome to attend, and we offer a special community training sliding scale rate for this particular course. Lunch will be provided. Registration is essential.
Please note that this course is not appropriate for participants under 16 years of age.
